I originally made these vegan chocolate chip cookies for my daughter to celebrate her birthday. Usually, on a birthday we celebrate in simple but small ways throughout the whole week. I will make their favorite dinners with a couple of new recipes they haven’t tried. This cookie recipe was one of them. I had no idea they would be such a hit!
Healthy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
This healthy vegan chocolate chip cookie has been made one too many times this past week so I’m warning you before baking that these are one of the best cookies I’ve ever tasted. To think that they are fully plant-based cookies without the use of refined sugars, I never would have guessed.
All I can tell you is to use moderation when making these only because they are so simple while still using healthy whole foods and plant-based ingredients, it’s easy to go overboard. Too much of a good thing can be bad (not sure if that’s true!).
These vegan chocolate chip cookies can be modified to your liking, chewy, soft, crunchy, whatever it is, this cookie has it all. My husband is not a huge fan of sweets but prefers soft chewy cookies. I like mine crunchy so that I can dip them in milk (almond milk, of course) and make them soft and wet, weird, I know.
So, with this healthy vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe, I will bake them to the minimum and then throw a few back in the oven for my liking.
How do you prefer your cookies? If you’re like me, you might also enjoy eating it raw and straight from the bowl. Here are another favorite raw vegan cookie dough bites for when you’re looking for an even healthier alternative.
Another great thing about these cookies is that there are less than 10 ingredients and only 1 bowl needed, that’s simple baking at its finest. Seriously, they are delicious. You have to make these cookies. Cheers!Print

Why Use Spelt?
Spelt flour has been known to help to regulate the body’s metabolism, aid in the creation of sex hormones, increase circulation, build strong bones, improve the immune system, boost digestive function, lower blood sugar, and reduce cholesterol levels in the body. It also contains significant levels of iron, copper, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, selenium, niacin, thiamin, vitamin B6, and folic acid. It has a high fiber content which helps to bulk up your stool and move food through the digestive tract, reducing conditions like constipation and bloating.
